Club aims to empower town’s youth
Young adults in Katanning now have the chance to become professional leaders with the setting up of the new Rotaract Club of Katanning.
The club has been created by local Georgia Kowald who, on returning home after a year in Italy on a Rotary Youth Exchange, decided her hometown would benefit from the program.
The club is aimed at people aged from 18 to 30 years and Ms Kowland organised its first event last month. The function — a formal dinner — was staged to introduce the club’s new members to the members of the Rotary Club of Katanning, who will take on a mentor role to the fledgling club.
Rotaract is a global organisation that empowers students and young professionals to create positive change in their local communities and around the world.
Sponsored by Rotary International, Rotaract Clubs across the country are part of a worldwide organisation of 210,000 individuals in 9100 clubs within 170 countries.
The new Rotaract Club of Katanning meets fortnightly. For more information contact Georgia Kowald at the Katanning Travel Centre.
